we are trying to get naturethroid on the NHS. until recently, the GP would not prescribe, saying there was no evidence that it works. since then, after getting it on a private prescription via a friend who's a GP, the consultant wrote again to the NHS GP showing what a good effect it was having on the blood results, and the GP said he would go back to the PTC to get permission to prescribe it on a named patient basis. that was at the end of 2012, and still nothing has happened. soemone suggested that the problem may be that the GPs can't prescribe the medication because apparently there is a new schedule which advises GPs not to prescribe medications with which they are not familiar and which are not in the British National Formulary.
does anyone know anything about this?
